I was on the pill for like 7-8 years and sometimes mine would come a day late. It eventually went down to only coming about 4 days out of the 7 placebo pills.

I have been on the pill for 7 years. My period would always come Sunday night then moved to Monday and then a couple years ago it settled on coming Tuesday around noon. A few times in the past year it arrived on Thursday. I always chalked it up to it being late due to stress.

I was on the pill for 5ish years. Every once in awhile, I’d be late. Once, I was a whole week late! Between my boyfriend at the time dumping me, gaining 30 pounds, and being in the middle of writing my senior thesis in college, I think the stress did me in. And of course the additional stress from being a week late didn’t help.

I’ve been on the pill for over 8 years. My period has gotten progressively later as time has gone on. I used to get it 2 days out, now it’s more like 4.

adnama:  For me sometimes I am late due to stress while on the pill but also the longer I have been on it, the more inactive pills I have had to take before it starts. Used to be 2, then 3 and now its 4.

Stress is a b****. It can mess with our bodies in ways unimaginable. One month I started my period 2 days late and it only lasted 1 day. I have been on the pill for a little over 5 years. At first I would get my period Sunday night, then it moved to Mon morning..Now it starts tuesday around 11am and by Thurs night its gone. Your body adjusts to the hormones in such a way thatyour periods become shorter and lighter. Although recently (like the last year) I have been having really bad cramps and before i never got them..the pills are supposed to make you have little to no cramps..so this is kind of a step back for me 🙁

adnama:  I’ve been on the pill for 3? 4? years now. My period sometimes just likes to screw with me and comes a day late, two days late. Sometimes a day early. Stress is hugely a factor! My body also just doesn’t like my uterus, because my cycle was even screwier before I was on the pill. Right now, I’m going towards a trend of getting it half days ish later every couple months. I think the pill can slow down the speed of getting your period during that off week, if that makes any sense. I remember my gynecologist mentioning something about it lightening up, getting later, the longer you were on the pill.

I was on the pill for about a year and a half,and I want to say my period came late a lot. But it was usually only if I had accidentally skipped a pull or two the week of my period.
